My friend Joan was so kind to send me the Orla Kiely bag (they where sold out in Kent).
Orla designed this bag for life for Tesco. The bag costs 4 pounds and for each bag sold 50 pence of the sale price will go to CLIC Sargent. Green living & charity...that sounds good!!
Enjoy your weekend.

At Chillham, a beautiful small Kentish village you can find Badgers Hill Farm. I tell you I love that place.
It's a working cider farm with a mini zoo and they sell locally produced food. Great place for coffee and garden accessories.

From all the royal wedding souvenirs ,
this biscuit tin from Marks&Spencer is my fav one.
The design is by freelance Illustrator Kate Forrester,
definitely a collectors item but then it was sold out right away.
For me Marks & Spencer make some great tins
and I "m looking forward to see what they will bring out this Christmas.

Did you know it is good for you to walk on the beach? Besides the beautiful view and the great people watching, walking in sand or pebbles makes you burn more calories.
There is also a lot of things you can collect like shells, driftwood and glass.
Or just take a good book & some coffee... enjoy & chill
PS. I posted this before but that post disappeared with all the comments... Sorry.

I love brunch ! The Habour Cafe (10 The Parade) in Margate is a great place for brunch. The restaurant overlooks the sea front and beach. The staff is very friendly and the place looks very bohemian & cosy, very much my cup of tea.
